Paradise Lost: A Play by Erin Shields 🍎
February 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
THEATREUNB PRESENTS: Paradise Lost
John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, one of the most iconic texts in English literature, tells the story of the war in Heaven that resulted in the casting out of Satan and the bad angels, the temptation and fall of Adam and Eve, and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
Erin Shields’ adaptation, which debuted to acclaim at Ontario’s Stratford Festival in 2018, offers a witty, subversive, and decidedly contemporary and feminist retelling of Genesis, featuring a female Satan (of course!), epic angelic sword fights, and a whole lot of Edenic hanky panky. Directed by Len Falkenstein with technical direction by Trent Logan, the play is produced and performed by the students of Drama 3170, in cooperation with the students of Drama 2174.
Paradise Lost will be performed Wednesday, February 8th through Saturday, February 11th, 7:30 PM nightly at Memorial Hall, UNB. Tickets are available at the door via cash, credit, or debit, priced at $15 regular, $12 for seniors and the underemployed, and $10 for students.
